Slip Repair Project Set To Start On Lawrence-650
Chillicothe (Friday, August 30, 2013) – Construction is set to begin on state Route 650 in Lawrence County, and contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart additional lane restrictions late next week.
Crews from Shelly and Sands, Inc. will reduce S.R. 650 to one, nine-foot lane approximately four miles north of the village of Hanging Rock in order to correct a landslide slip. The project site is situated between T.R. 218 (Tunnel Ridge Road) and C.R. 25 (Pine Grove-Smokey Row Road), and construction includes installing a 106-foot, plug-pile retaining wall along the route’s east side, as well as pavement, shoulder and guardrail reconstruction.
Lane restrictions are anticipated to go into effect on Thursday, September 5, and throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of temporary traffic signals.
Shelly and Sands was awarded a contract for approximately $208,198 to complete the project, and all work is anticipated to be completed in late fall.
